I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God
so that you may know that you have eternal life. [1 John 5:13]

The Master Muse

I lift up my eyes to the hills. From whence does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved, he who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand. The sun shall not smite you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and for evermore.
(Psalms 121:1-8 NKJV)

I have felt very blessed lately on so many levels. This is one of those subscription bible verse emails I received today. It seemed so fitting as I realize anew each day how much I can depend upon God to meet all my needs.

He is the Master Muse! He is the source of all inspiration, imagination and creativity! Because of Him and His divine plan and purpose for my life am I able to find the time and the energy to write so prolifically! My ardent prayer is that I am accurately and correctly sharing the words He has revealed to me, those He has breathed through me, and those He uses to reach the hearts of my readers.

If you are struggling in your writing, turn it over to Him, the Creator of all thought and word. He is your keeper and He will keep your life from this time forth and for ever more.

Mary,

So many times I find myself standing at the crossroads of "what to write today?"

Ultimately I find something else to do whilst I think about it, and then God reveals it to me. Sometimes it's an image, a word, or even the whole post. All I can say, is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

Love the picture by the way as well!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Like sister Kat, I'm that way, too. When there are so many things that happened at work that I want to share then don't really have a clue if there's a spiritual implications as well. I give it to the Lord, open my Bible and there it is -His awesome Word that applies to what I want to share. He is awesome! And yes, if we turn it to Him, what we are about to post has deeper sense because we know that it comes from Him.
And I sense that from your writing too how much you are inspired by Him. Glory to God!

I keep an index card with a Bible verse written on it propped in front of my computer monitor at work for meditation, encouragement and memorization. Right now, my verse is Psalm 12:1. One of my faves.
